CHAPTER XVIII  In tlie Work-Table Drawer  I   don't;   know .who   you  are,   nor  what you want here, and I'm fair fed  up with all this business.     Jh-. Tritton wasn't so- wonderful good" a lodger as to make it any satisfaction to  have liis room kept locked up now to  please the police.     And  tVhy should  1 let you in more than anybody else,  1 should like to know.  Mrs'.' Batton, the untidy landlady of  a neglected looking Bloomsbury lodging house, would no doubt have: talked on indefinitely in her shrill, acid  tones, but. that.breath failed her, and  the girl on the doorstep seized her  opportunity.  It must seem very strange that I  have come here to trouble you, came  ihe reply In the most, soothing of  tones, but I really have a very good  reason for coming, and If thia gentleman and 1 might go up to Mr. Tritton's  sitting-room for ten minutes, only for  ten minutes, i.should be so grateful.  What, yer goin' to do there? said  Mrs. Batten, mollified partly by the  speaker's gentleness of manner, partly hy the smile on the lovely girlish  face uplifted to hers.  This lady wanted, to see a work-  table which Mr. Tritton brought away  from the country last week, Richard  Bevan put in, looking into Mrs. Brt-  ten's irate face with a kindly glance  iii his eyes, we will not disturb anything in the room, if we may just  see that. .,  I dunno whatever me 'ushand will  say to me grumbled the.landlady, her  accents very considerably softened by  the ten shilling piece which Bevan  had slipped into her hand, 'e said  (here wasn't nobody else to be let  into the room, or we'd have the police down on us.  Anybody else let into the room?  Betty turned back and whispered the  words to Bevan, wnilst Mrs. Batten  preceded them into the. gloomy hall.  Who has been here already.  I don't know, 1 don't know, I'm  sure, Bevan answered'" dreamily, liis  thoughts much more engaged on the  girl herself, and his dislike to'"seeing  her in so sordid a place, than on the  -erraiul--which~had~brough~trhTnT*tliereT  ��������������� I should like to know who else has  been here, said ��������������������������� practical Betty . " in an undertone, a,? they  followed Mrs. Batten <up the  dingiest of dingy staircases.  ���������'Perhaps I shall find out, she added  softly, when having climbed to the  third floor, Mrs. Batten unlocked a  door.on their right.  The room into which she ushered  them was a cheerless enough place���������  barely furnished as a bed sitting-  room, and wearing already that forsaken, desolate look which is so soon  shown by an empty room. Dust lay  thickly on the mantelpiece, the table,  the chairs; a sheet had been Hung  over the bed, but no attempt had  been, made to cover anything else,  and tho litter of papers und hooks on  Ihe table, Ihe pipes strewing the mantelpiece, nnd the clothes (lung over  one of the chairs, seemed to indicate  that everything had been lert.8e.vere'  ly ns It was when Trittton left the  apartment, for the last, time.  That, man who came left the papers and things in a, rare muddle,  Mrs. Batten remarked, reflectively;  glancing at tho strewn tnblo, but he  seemed in a hurry, and didn't give  Msself time to tidy much.  When did lie come' tt Was Betty  roved round Iho dreary room, alighting  terday?  Day before yesterday, Mrs. Batten  answered with an affability due no  doubt to the gold coin Bevan had  pressed into her hand. Said he was  a friend of the poor young gentleman,  and had to find an important paper.  Told us he'd square it up with the police, whicli I believed him. But went  away, he did, looking as black as thunder, and it's my opinion he couldn't  a found what lie was looking for.'  ��������� This work-table is what I came to  see, Betty said'quietly, smiling a bewitching smile into the landlady's hard  face; It. used to stand In a house I  often"-visited, .and I think there is  something in it I want.  Tis a queer old-fashioned sort of a  thing, Mrs, Batten answered cohtempr  tuously, and whatever Mr. Tritton  wanted it for beats me to think.  ��������� Betty lost the thread of the good  lady's remarks as her quick fingers  lifted the top of the work table and  rummaged amongst the silks fnside,  whilst. Bevan, with a perspicacity very  foragn to his usual dreaminess, engaged Mrs Batteu in a conversation  upon the troublesome world in general  and her own corner of it in particular.  Betty's business was rapidly done, and  long before the landlady had finished  describing to her sympathetic listener  the trials of life in a London lodging-  house.-Betty had shut down the work-  table and was back at Bevan's side.  It ain't taken you long to look in  that table, Mrs Batten said condescendingly, not so long as it took the  other party what come.  I am quite ready now, Betty said,  looking into* Bevan's eyes with a significant glance in her own.  Their downward progress was impeded by the flow of conversation that  poured from the loquacious landlady,  but at last they stood in the street,  the door of tbe grim house closed behind them, and Bei.t.y,turned to Bevan  saying quickly���������       ,''.,'  I don't know whether I liave found  anything that will really be of any  use, but there was a paper in that  secret drawer, a paper which wasn't  there when I found the letter there.  Why did you make up your mind  that you would-find a paper there, and  that it would be important? Bevan  questioned looking tenderly down at  her flushed  face.  I���������don't;konw, she answered slowly.  I can't, explain���������even to you���������even to  myself, why I felt so sure that in the  work-table'i should find something  which would throw a light on Mr. Tritton's murder. The certainty came  over me like a flash of lightning when  I stood in the room where he lay. and  when I saw that face at the window.  It was���������almost as if someone told me  to come here and look in the secret  drawer. I can't explain it but I knew  I had to do it.

I had a feeling that simply made me  know he had put something into that,  "work-table drawer, she said, an odd  note of Iriuhiph'iln her voice, nnd now,  look and see what It is, and whether  It.

The pedlar who was on to his job  would drive up to a prosperous appearing farm residence and, equipped  with a small storage battery, would  'proceed to demonstrate to the family  the awful'-fate which awaited, if the  home was not protected by a lightning rod. Harrowing tales of the destruction of houses, consuming all the  earthly possessions of the occupants  and frequently resulting in the death  of the entire family, were told so'elo-  quently and pathetically that a tract  was usually signed without delay .and  the lightning rod man proceeded, to  cover the house and the barn with  the. slender metallic; rods, implanting  the lower end firmly in the earth and  erecting as many shafts above-lhe  roof as his conscience would permit,  with a rooster or an arrow or some  other ornament surmounting the  shaft. ,:.\ '������������������  When the buildings had been well  covered in this, way'the pedlar left on  his way to persuade others to allow  him to rod their buildings, and a few  months later, often, the farmer was  notified by a bank that ho ..was expected to call and pay the amount called for In the contract, a sum which  usually surprised the debtor, but as  the contract was generally iii the nature of a lien on the buildings the  owner had no option but to pay the  bill.  But the passing of the lightning rod  has been going on for many years and  -now-it-is-practically-unknown-except-  when it is seen on some of the older  buildings where it has been for .perhaps 25 or 30 years, and the people  have come to look upon it with about  as much respect for its virtue as they  have for the left hind leg of a graveyard rabbit.

LIBERTY  BELL  A  FAKE  A Double-Barreled Escape  Miners are among the most heroic i  people in tha world. Danger la al-j  ways besido them, and they are \  schooled to believe that at'  any time they will como face to face  with death. The result- of this is.  that they are humorous in their bold-j  ness.  . j  In one of the mines    of   Perinsyl-.  vanla-there /was a cave-in which imprisoned a miner named Jack Thorn-j  ton.     The accident happened on Friday afternoon, and the fellow labor-,  ers of the entombed men set to work  at once to dig him out.     It was not  until Sunday morning, however, that  they reached his prison chamber, and  by this time -they   wero   wondering  whether ho;' had  been  suffocated  or  starved to "death.      One ? of   them  stuck his head through the aperture  made by  the picks of the  resucers  and called out:  Jack, are you all right?. ;  All right, came the reply, and then  after a pause, What day is this?  .  Sunday, answered the friend.  Gee! exclaimed Jack- I'm glad of  that. That was one Saturday night  when those saloon keepers didn't get  my wages!

Why, my wife's drove that horse ever  since In was a 3-year-old.  That's all right, then, said the  strangLi'. I merely asked because  the' gvi.y has just gone down the  street like a mad bull, and the old  lady's hanging onto the back of the  trap, screaming murder!

Did Not Ring Out Independence, Says  Historian  Joseph Jackson, Philadelphia historian, comes forward with a statement  that the old cracked hell which is  treasured as an historic relic in Independence Hall was not used in proclaiming liberty throughout the land.  Jackson declares that .the thousands  who came yearly to Independence  Hall to view tho old alleged mouthpiece of newly-born liberty were imposed on. Mr. Jackson then takes up  the alleged ringing of the bell and the  claim that it proclaimed liberty on  July 4, 177G. So far as he has been  able to discover after years of research, this misleading statement is  directly traceable to "Watson's Annals  of Philadelphia," which was published  in 1830. Prior to the publication of  that work the hell was known as the  State house bell and not Liberty bell,  and nothing .had been said about its  use In proclaiming independence. Even  as late as 1830 it was known as the  State House bell even'after that building had ceased to be tho assembly and  title had passed to Philadelphia.  Examination Time  The eagle-eyed examiner was sure  Jones was cheating. Twenty times  during the last hour that individual  had.pulled out his watch and examined It closely- Jones, suddenly  roared- the master,, bring your watch  to me! Jones, reluctantly handed  over the timepiece, but all the disgusted examiner found was a small  slip pasted to the dial on which was  written "Fooled!" Jones was allowed to resume his-, work, but he still  referred to his watch so frequently  that the examiner again grew suspicious. Suddenly an idea struck him.  Jones, he sTiouted, I'll,see your watch  agaiu. please! ��������� With eager hands  the examiner' seized the watch, bul.  this time ho devoted his attention to  the-back'of the case.. Suro enough  there was a scrap of paper inside-  for it bore the inscription���������"Fooled  again!" Then Jones was allowed to  work in peace.

With this sentence delivered at a -recent meeting  oi-"Swiss~men-of"Sciencer-Professor  Emil Abrnen has concisely defined a  modern viewpoint" of nutrition which  is rapidly becoming prominent. Before  they leave the alimentary tract the  foodstuffs which we eat are broken up  into fragments that serve as tho real  food of the body. Complex Carbohydrates arov resolved into sugar; fats  are splitinto glycerol and fatty acids;  proteins yield an aggregation of characteristic substances simple "building  stones" at the disposal of the internal  tissue cells so. that thoy can select  or further rearrange them aB the  special functions require. Whether  it is meat or cereals that we eat is,  after all, largely a matter of indifference, for they all furnish similar digestion fragments, so long as the digestive processes perform tholr duty.

The aspen poplar, frequently spoken of as the white poplar, is one of  the most, common trees all over Canada-(at any rate in, that portion of  the Dominion east of tlie Rocky  Mountains). lu many* parts of the  Dominion it-forms quite extensive forests (especially in districts that have  been burned over). This fact gives  it a place of some importance in the  forestry, of: the Dominion, although it  is one of the inferior woods.  Some years ago (in 1905) the Forestry Branch of the Department of  l'ie Interior made a careful survey of  Put Off  Ilon-own���������Say. old man, I'm badly  In need uf n V nr 1 wo.

At the end of  that time there would be standing on  each acre about 850 trees, of an average height, of 45 feet, and an average diameter, at A\'., feet above the  ground, of 6 inches; these would yield  some -10  cords of. wood.  Roceutiy the United States Forest.  Service published their Bulletin No.  A3, entitled "Tlie, Aspens," and it is  Interesting to nofc that, their results  come close to the Usurps made oul by  the Canadian survey. Volume tables  given al the conclusion of this bulletin show that tree* of the height and  diameter given above will each yield  between one twentieth and one twenty fifth of a cord of wood apiece, Thus  the 8fi0 acres would give somewhere  between thirly-four and forty-two  cords of wood. Tho average of tho  two amounts gives thirty-eight cords,  a figure, nearly the fimvio us Ihut obtained hv the Canadians.  As there are 55,000 acres In the  Turtle Mountain reserve that are capable of growing timber, It is a reasonable- infei-ence that the reserve  may hu counted on lo produce 55.000  cords, or (hereabouts, of wood por  year. At I lie low rale of $1 per cord  on the slump, this would mean an minimi revenue to tin) state of $55,000.
